Shampoo Bars

This weekend I tried something new. Shampoo bars....solid shampoo. I like this concept and think it is perfect for travel and/or gym bags. No liquids with a chance for leaking. So I thought I would give it a whirl....First melt everything....


Then everything went fast to keep it at the right temp and into the molds, because once removed from the heat source it cooled down fast, and 10 degrees makes a big difference on keeping it more fluid and easier to work with....but I got it into the mold as best I could...






Check out the bubblage on clean up :)....




Here are the bars unmolded....




One thing I would do different next time is to keep the pan on the double boiler instead of removing it from the heat onto the counter while filling the molds...I think that would have bought me a little more time in getting the mold packed better for a smoother appearance??




I scented them Green Tea & Cucumber and tinted them with a smidge of green mica....I will let you know what my testers think about them. :)
